Pido fumes over Vanguardia’s endgame call
Pido Jarencio on Ariel Vanguardia's decision to call a timeout but not take a shot: “Ano ba ang purpose ng timeout? Di ba para mag-shoot?”
NORTHPORT coach Pido Jarencio noted respect begets respect as he explained his reaction to the endgame call of Blackwater’s Ariel Vanguardia on Saturday in Antipolo.
“Kung humihingi ka ng respeto, dapat marunong ka ring remespeto sa ibang tao,” said the veteran coach after he was seen bumping Vanguardia on the sideline after the final buzzer.
Jarencio said he understood Blackwater’s move to call a timeout in the dying moments, even as the Bossing led by seven. But the Bossing didn’t call a play nor attempted to make a shot.
“Hindi lang ako ang binabastos niya, yung buong organisasyon namin ang binabastos niya.”

ARIEL Vanguradia issued an apology to Pido Jarencio during the post-game media conference, but said he also took exception to the Northport coach’s words during the sideline pat.
“Ako, mahal na mahal ko nanay ko. Every victory, namimiss ko siya. Pumanaw na siya. Wag lang mumurahin ‘yung nanay ko, please. And I apologize. Pagpasok ko dito, medyo mainit ulo ko. I apologize kasi nasama ‘yung nanay ko eh. Talagang very emotional ako. I’m very close to my mom. Kung minura mo mom ko, wag naman,” said Vanguardia.
“But coach Pido, I’m sorry if na-offend kita. I apologize na hindi ako tumira sa last possession. Pero hindi kita minura. Hindi ko gagawin ‘yun sayo dahil ang taas ng respeto ko sayo,” said Vanguardia.
Vanguardia said he was surprised by Jarencio’s reaction since coaches agreed before the conference that such timeouts are acceptable.
“But there’s no disrespect kasi akala ko, nag-agree na kami. I don’t know kung mas disrespectful ba ‘yung hindi ako tumira. We had the same possession. Hindi ko alam eh. Walang open shot so sabi ko, wag na tayong tumira. Baka makuha nila, maliit pa quotient.”
